Discovering new things

Hey you all, so I bought my 951 about 2 months ago and the PO didn't go into great detail about the things on the car. Or I actually didn't ask him. Anyway, while changing the oil the other week, I discovered Koni Yellows in my front suspension. What a surprise that was for me! But there was a different suspension in the back. Does this make any differance?

Also, how would I know if I have lsd on my car? I'm discovering new things all teh time about my car and most good some bad, but it's going well. Thanks

Alex

You'll see oil cooler lines go from the transmission to the front of the car, near the radiator. That would indicate LSD is present

Jack the rear up and spin one wheel by hand, teh other wheel will rspin int the same direction if you have lsd, opposite if you don't.

Actually NO.
The oil cooler is a coil of finned tubing that stays right near the trans.
Check your options sticker in trunk between taillights or in your owners manual. The option codes can be decoded here.

well the 86 didn't come with koni yellows right? so he obviously put them on after and i don't think the options sticker would show that.

As for the wheel spinning thing, will that show for sure if I have lsd?

I believe the tourist delivery option is ... car was picked up from the factory and driven around on Euro vacation, then dropped off and shipped to the States for the owner.

A few items of dis-information up there!
I think all '86 951's came with the oil cooler, which is independant of lsd, & very few '86's came with lsd. The tranny cooler is about 3 coils of tubing that come out of the tranny and go back into the tranny (they don't got more than 1.5 feet out). Limited slip is indicated by the option code 220 on the sticker, but even if you have the code you may not have lsd (as someone may have swapped out that tranny). You have to jack up the car and spin one wheel. If they both spin the same way you have lsd, if they spin opposite ways you have an open diff.
My '89 S2 has no tranny cooler, but my '86 951 had the cooler and no lsd (until I added it). I believe that '87 951's don't always have the cooler.
You rear shocks are pretty cheap and easy to replace. If you have otherwise good shocks in good condition, well, then they're ok. Konis would probably be better!

I think it's a common 'side plate', but I'm not sure. I know the cooler can be expensive and even hard to find used. Plus, you need a different internal drive gear for the oil pump that is also expensive and hard to find ($450ish new, $200 used?). I think you'd have to be working your 924S transmission REALLY hard to need it, like '300hp at the track' hard. I think some guys build their own with an electric motor, but I've not seen any of those. Unless you have some amazing hp, just change your oil regularly.

well I lifted the car today to check for the dual spinning tire action and just my luck. no lsd. oh well, guess I can't have everything. As for the option codes in the trunk, I can barely read them. Is it anywhere else in the car?
